uname -a will tell you about your kernel version,
architecture, type (multiprocessor etc), the time it
was built, using which compiler and a few other

Under Debian (I know you're running Fedora), dpkg -l
packagename will tell you if it is installed and what
version. I don't know the rpm equiv.

ps will tell you what processes you have running. As
root, ps aux (no need for the - symbol) will tell you
what processes are running for all users with a few
other details.

Hope that helps.
